Graduate School Student Advisory Board

Seeking applications for 2016-17!

 
The Graduate School Student Advisory Board's mission is to help the Graduate School create a supportive community for graduate students, provide workshops that enhance the quality of the graduate experience, and identify and share resources for professional development. We accomplish this through monthly meetings where graduate students can speak directly with the Deans of the Graduate School, having graduate students serve as a liaison to the larger graduate student population via various communication channels (I.e. communicating with students via list serves, emails, word of mouth, social media), and assisting with Graduate School programming endeavors (i.e. planning of workshops and events such as the Three Minute Thesis and the Grad Forum).

The Graduate School Student Advisory Board's mission is to help the Graduate School create a supportive community for graduate students, provide workshops that enhance the quality of your graduate experience, and identify and share resources for professional development.

 
The Advisory Board is committed to fostering social and intellectual interaction among graduate students across disciplines. In April 2010, the Board hosted the university's first interdisciplinary Graduate Student Research Forum.
 
The Advisory Board includes 15-20 graduate students who collaborate with representatives from the Graduate School. Members represent a variety of academic disciplines and include a mix of master's and doctoral students, GEs and non-GEs, and students from diverse populations on our campus. In order to maintain balanced representation,each year we invite applications from graduate students in specific discipline areas.

Being a member of the Graduate School Advisory Board was extremely enlightening. It gave me the chance to meet students from all across campus, from many different disciplines, creating a great diverse group of people. The Graduate School does a good job of bringing in a mix of majors and backgrounds to the board. In addition, I learned a lot about the Graduate School and the university itself. We were able to hear everyday issues faced by grads on campus and work towards solutions. In my first year on the board, we actually created the Graduate Student Association as a means to begin addressing issues we were seeing in graduate life.  I really enjoyed my time on the board, and am grateful that the Graduate School takes the time and opportunity to work with this group to create a better graduate experience for all.
